Democrats vs. Republicans, Obama vs. McCain
Yes, indeed, Margaret Sanger, was the founder of the "American Birth Control League", which eventually became "Planned Parenthood" [Sanger served as president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation from 1952 to 1959]. She was also a bigot who once gave a lecture to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey.
Sanger is reported to have said about African-Americans, Immigrants and Indigents: "Human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born."
On sterilization and racial purification, Sanger believed "that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization."
It is quite interesting then that Barack Obama and the organization that Margaret Sanger founded,"Planned Parenthood", have expressed such mutual affection and admiration for one another.
